What more could you ask for!
Our loving home (with very few steps if your dog is elderly) has a beautiful (but small and manageable!) fenced-in backyard, an open floorplan kitchen and lots of space to wonder/explore or just lay low - and we just may offer the perfect sanctuary for your pet while you are aware! We even have a "fenced in" side yard (probably 12x20?) that's "just for dogs" :) It's attached to the house so we can see them playing right out the window (or from our deck) or can offer not to have your animal outside without supervision if that's what you prefer.
Although we haven't had to "house-train" in a while, we're willing to accommodate puppies as well, understanding the importance of *consistency* as much as possible! That's where the benefit of having someone home during the day really kicks in... and we offer that.
We have a (beyond) loving 10 year old lab that has never barked a day in her life (we are convinced she doesn't know how), but she's lazy as can be and when she's not completely indifferent to our various visits from family and friend's dogs, she's loving the extra company.
We've been pet sitting for friends and family for years and can provide wonderful references, as we now reach out to offer the same comfort and reliability to your loved ones too! Our three year old son is a dog lover too but if you have a pet that would rather not "be disturbed" he completely understands "off limits" and will leave your pet to him or herself :)
Willing to give medicine, adhere to special dietary needs, and provide whatever care YOU would normally provide to your pet while in your own home.
Any questions at all, just ask. We are non-smokers, have someone at home 24/7 (except for errands, appointments, etc. of course) and are true animal lovers at heart. Between the two of us we've had eight dogs over our lifetimes!
